Mansell previously collaborated with director Ben Wheatley on High-R...

To mark the 20th anniversary of the debut of Requiem for a Dream, MoMA organized a virtual reunion of director Darren Aronofsky and the four principle cast members (Ellen Burstyn, Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly, and Marlon Wayans) to talk about “the film and its impact on cinema and culture”. Would have loved to hear from cinematographer Matthew Libatique and Clint Mansell (who did the fantastic music for the film) as well, but even six-person online panels are a little unwieldy.

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending Whatever you have to say about Zack Snyder’s filmmaking style, his Watchmen movie is about as faithful an adaptation that fans of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel could have hoped for. The only major deviation from the source material was the omission of the giant squid, which Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias transported to New York in order to bring about global peace. Snyder’s film instead framed Doctor Manhattan for a series of e...

It is, along with the climate crisis that helps fuel it, an ecological genocide of a scale that inspires almost religious levels of awe and terror. The infer...
